Nucleoid Since bacteria do not have a nucleus to protect their DNA, it gathers up in one area near the centre of the organism

Sex pilus Bacteria reproduce asexually (without the need for a partner) but can share useful plasmids amongst the colony by connecting these appendages together as a bridge

Ribosome These enzymes (proteins) are used to translate DNA into other vital proteins that the organism requires to survive

Also aids in cell division for growth and reproduction Chloroplast Found in plant cells only! (NOT in fungi!) Organelle responsible for sugar synthesis...
